This ride is excellent. You visit charming places and reach areas that you normally do not see in other types of transport. The super comfortable tour, the guide always attentive and friendly. First you go to a super typical market, buy your supplies and start the bike ride to have a picnic next to a lake. Getting to Giverny like this makes this experience unique. Super recommended.

Eurostar from Paris was awful! Waited in line for 3 HOURS to get to passport control! Train delayed because the lines were so bad! Eurostar staff yelling at people, it was uncalled for! The tour itself was great, Anna our guide was top notch! Couldn’t asked for anyone any better! We had 3 kids, ages 6, 9, and 11 and she was great with them!

This was my first time to Paris and with limited time it was an excellent way to see the highlights. Everything went on schedule from the train from London to the return. Anna was our guide and was excellent! She was very knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommend!!

This was a wonderful adventure. Our guide Richard (From Cambridge) was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The local marché in Vernon was great to buy our picnic food. Monet garden was a bit crowded. Suggest starting your visit with the water garden.

Ana was a very good travel guide. She knew the various history of the areas we were in. She was very accommodating and compassionate.
